Was a great book to listen to. Very easy to listen to and very inspiring. Great insight to the ultimate professional and how tough not only physical but how mentally strong Chrissy.
Great role model for females. Shows them that they can travel, have a good education beat the boys in their chosen sport and do whatever they put their mind to.
Great role model for females in all aspects of life.
